Animal Health Assistant

Charlotte has been working as a animal health assistant at Tanglefoot Veterinary Services since September 2017.  She came on board to help the assist the technicians whenever possible.  She started her career back in 2008 in Nelson B.C and has since managed to gain quite a lot of experience with animal health assistant work.  Seeing as she has been horse back riding since she was just four years old, she is really excited to be working in a mixed animal practice.  Charlotte hopes to bring her horse who currently lives in Nelson to Cranbrook so she can enjoy riding with other people, and finally have more time to actually ride.  In her free time she likes to go x-country skiing in winter, and during summer she loves to run.  She is so excited to go exploring in Kimberley and Cranbrook, both for running and mountain biking.
